Overlooking Lake Maggiore, in central Stresa, the grandiose Regina Palace has been going strong for over a century. It has welcomed a host of celebrities over the years, from George Bernard Shaw to movie stars and international royals, including Queen Sofia of Greece and Princess Margaret of the UK.
Stresa is a great base for exploring the area. Ferries to the local islands leave from the terminal, a 4-minute walk away. Rover tickets allow you to ‘hop-on-hop-off’ the ferries and are an excellent way to see the islands at your own pace, although there are plenty of planned tours available.
The Regina Palace is a destination in itself, though -- they really don’t make them like this any more. Brimming with old world charm, the elegant red, gold and cream interior features stained glass ceilings, marble floors and ornate staircases. Outside is no less opulent, with a landscaped park, palm-fringed pool, tennis court, and five-a-side football pitch. The hotel’s wellness centre has a sauna, pool, Turkish baths and a gym, plus a long list of beauty treatments (charges apply). There are two plush restaurants and a snack bar, while a piano bar with outdoor seating hosts live classical music six evenings a week. Breakfast is included.
The 214 sumptuous rooms are furnished with period pieces, many adding baroque wall and ceiling details, yet still have all mod-cons -- free WiFi, minibars and Jacuzzis. Many have balconies with views of the Borromean Islands, others look out onto the park.
